Quick Bytes: Alex Ross

Alex Ross is a music critic for the New Yorker, focusing mostly on “classical” music. His writings are interesting and thoughtful, and most of his columns are freely available (like this recent piece on regional orchestras profiling Indianapolis, Nashville, and Alabama).

His blog, The Rest is Noise, links to his articles and also has informal posts. He also has good links, including a long list of music blogs you might enjoy.

Take some time and check out this great resource. If you are a fan, he also has a book coming out in October, and has a book tour that includes two stops in Chicago (November 5 and 6).
